    I just realized that I found this site almost 4 years ago. Since then I have left the site and came back several times. But I would not say that I am much better than I was 4 years ago. So many people I have talked to over the years have figured it out, but here I am.

    Has anyone ever felt like they couldnt put the puzzle together and then one day they did? What is some advice for someone who has failed for 4 years now?

  2. I’ve been on the forums give or take 5-6 years. Was active over yourbrainrebalanced when it was starting to hit off. The thing I’ve come to realise is that this is much like alcoholism in that one relapse puts you back to square one or withdrawals so to speak. This current run I’m on now before I felt the same I did years back.

    Fitting the puzzle is a long gradual process but all jokes aside is well worth it. I’m feeling much better than I was 161 days ago and it has been a mighty test. I’ve got a hell of a long way to go though.

  3. I would say that it depends on what you are trying to achieve with this. There are people in this forum for many different reasons. I joined nofap back in August last year and although I've had my share of relapses, I can at least say that I've saved myself from wasting countless hours viewing porn and masturbating. For that reason alone I feel a sense of accomplishment. As far as making improvements in other areas of my life, much work is still needed, but I will get there. The fact that you're here and working on improving yourself is a lot more than most can say. Try not to be so hard on yourself.:)

  4. I appreciate where you’re coming from and thank you for your encouragement. But I cannot attest enough to how much porn and masturbation has robbed my upbringing neurochemically speaking anyway from pied and the mental symptoms, it’s hell on Earth!
     
  5. No one can. I'm so pissed that it took this long for me to come to the realization that PMO was so destructive. I can't Imagine how different my life would have turned out had I not fallen into this addiction. I guess that all we can do is to put it behind us and focus on the now.
